Wind Credits -- Super Bowl Game -- To Offset Carbon Footprint

Link here.
A strong North Dakota breeze will blow over the field of Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Super Bowl Sunday, in a manner of speaking.

Renewable energy credits from power generated from North Dakota wind farms will be used to offset 15,000 megawatt hours of electricity associated with the NFL extravaganza on Feb. 5.

The credits were provided through Green Mountain Energy Co., based in Austin, Texas, which describes itself as the nation’s longest-serving provider of green power.

The bloc of renewable energy credits were acquired from Minnkota Power Cooperative, based in Grand Forks, from wind farms near Langdon and north of Valley City.
One word: ridiculous.
